I've been running Spriest-Mage-MW / Lock-Mage-MW in 3s for the past couple weeks, and it seems to be working fairly well; though monks still have their weaknesses.
From what I can see, monks are still very easily controlled. There's really nothing that can be done about this; the only way I've done well is by running with a shadowpriest that can get a dispel once in a while. Sure, monks have teleport and roll to get away from most CC; but the amount of instant CC in the game still makes it hard to avoid. Most of the comps I face have a mage or a hunter; and while my teammates are still able to peel for me, get the traps, or stop priests from coming in to land fears, there's still an issue of being trained.
Aside from that, I feel as if monks are not that bad right now. Mana isn't much of an issue anymore, they're very hard to kill if they're able to avoid bad positioning (which is good, due to all the healer-killing comps nowadays). They also have a good amount of CC if specced into Charging Ox Wave or Leg Sweep, coupled with paralysis and interrupts, roots and disarms.
I'm just wondering how everyone else feels about MW right now, we're currently at 2100 mmr running shatter play.
What comps have other monks been successful with, and what are the strengths and weaknesses that come with the comp?
